I have setup networking in a new HP laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium
and found network is working fine showing all the pc in the workgroup and
able to access them also. I have also create a dummy user in my server
(windows 2000) and as well as in laptop and avail to logon server with out
any problem. But I have face problem when I have take the same to the factory
where this will be finally use. I have change the workgroup according and
create the user but it does not show all pc in the workgroup and not able to
logon/access the server (Windows 2000). And networking showing as Network2.
If I get back In the office and change the workgroup it works fine.
Please advice how I change the workgroup in the factory to access the
network including server with out reinstall the OS.
Thanks in Advance for Help and support.
